Does everyone remember when St. Clair County asked for a sales tax increase to build the MetroLink extension from East St. Louis to Scott Air Force Base? Well, St. Clair County is still collecting that tax since 1992. A further extension from Scott to MidAmerica Airport appears will never be built. So why not use that sales tax fund to add onto the county jail, or where is the money going to now?
